Thugs Invade Radio Station, Abduct Sports Presenter, Ferdinand Mbum


Suspected  Plateau United  thugs  invaded the premises of Jay 101.9 FM  in Jos assaulted and abducted a sports presenter, Ferdinand Mbum, and whisked him to an unknown destination.

The incident was said to have taken place around 6.25pm after Sports Extra.

Analysts believe that the invasion is  political since the radio station  is believed to  have links with  former Plateau State governor,  Jonah  Jang.

The thugs said to have been led by a top official of the supporters’ club were allegedly ordered by the GM  of Plateau United,  Pius Henwan, to perpetrate the act.

The invaders were said to have arrived  at the station in a black Honda Accord and a Peugeot 406  branded 4+4 and Lalong Boys, with the picture of Plateau State Governor Simon Lalong boldly inscribed on it.

A statement  on Sunday by the Station Manager of the radio station, Mangna Wamyil,  said they  had  reported  the incident to the police.

The station called on the state  Commissioner of Police, Andie Undie, to arrest and prosecute the culprits or risk a protest march to his office during the week.
